Classic Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman #128

WW #128

(DC Comics, 1941-2015)

Precinct1313’s weekly comic-cover countdown to the 75th anniversary of everyone’s favourite Amazon warrior continues with Wonder Woman #128. Released in February of 1962, written by Robert Kanigher, with the cover and interior art by Ross Andru and Mike Esposito. This issue contains two classic stories, The Origin Of The Amazing Robot Plane and Vengeance Of The Angle Man.

Though not depicted on the cover itself, the most interesting thing about this particular issue is the origin of Diana’s classic Invisible plane (aka Robot Plane). 

WW I jet

When Wonder Woman was originally created in the early 1940’s, even though she was capable of many amazing feats, the ability of flight was not amongst them. As she moved away from the golden age of comics (1930’s-1950’s) she grew more powerful, eventually during 1985’s Crisis On Infinite Earths storyline, she gained the ability to fly, thus negating the use of her faithful invisible jet. It also garners the award for being the first stealth plane design in history, another first for Wonder Woman’s creator, William Moulton Marston, who not only created the world’s first female Superhero but also, as mentioned in a previous post, the original polygraph machine.

Join us again in a weeks time for another classic WW cover, my astonishing Amazonian associates.
